How Long Do Crowns Last?
Dental crowns allow your i-Implant Dentistry dentist to protect your teeth that have suffered extensive damage. Our goal is to protect and preserve the structure of your natural existing teeth as much as possible. Dental crowns allow us to do this by strengthening a weakened or broken tooth while also restoring your smile and ability to eat and chew.
What Is the Dental Crown Process?
At i-Implant Dentistry in Roseville, we begin the process by making impressions of your smile and choosing the perfect tooth shade that matches your existing teeth. The goal is to create a prosthetic tooth that retains function and blends in with your smile. No one will be able to tell that you have a dental crown because it looks so natural.
Your dentist will collaborate with you to design a beautiful and realistic dental crown that exceeds your expectations.
The Dental Crown Life Span
With proper care and maintenance, your porcelain crown can last for many years. Depending on the wear and tear the dental crown absorbs, your crown can last between five and 15 years—making them a long-term dental investment that restores beauty and function to your smile.
Sartell patients can prolong their investment by practicing good oral hygiene like daily brushing and flossing, maintaining regular dental cleanings, avoiding grinding or clench teeth, chewing ice, chewing fingernails, and using teeth as a tool to open packages.
